Some of Trump's fellow Republicans have joined Democrats in blaming Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman for Khashoggi's death and backing legislation that could respond by, among other things, ending U.S. support for Saudi-led war effort in Yemen and suspending weapons sales to the kingdom. "Guilty. A guilty verdict", the senator said.

A group of Republican and Democratic senators defied the White House on Wednesday and introduced a resolution that would hold Saudi Arabia's crown prince accountable for the murder of Jamal Khashoggi.

In the Senate, efforts to condemn the crown prince for Khashoggi's killing and curb American support for the Saudi-led military action in Yemen are moving forward.

Corker and other Republican senators, such as Lindsey Graham of SC, have slammed President Donald Trump repeatedly for his stance toward Saudi Arabia following the October 2 killing of Khashoggi, who was a columnist for The Washington Post and a USA resident.

Moreover, the resolution criticises the crown prince's domestic policies, accusing him of frequently disregarding the rights of Saudi citizens "in an effort to consolidate his personal control over Saudi government decision-making".

US lawmakers eager to castigate Saudi Arabia for killing a journalist and its conduct of a military campaign in Yemen hope the Senate soon will pass one or more measures reflecting Washington's growing anger.

Khashoggi was killed in October, at Saudi Arabia's consulate in Istanbul.

MIT president Rafael Reif asked for a review of the university's relationships with the longtime United States ally after the killing of Jamal Khashoggi. "One is support for Saudi Arabia in their war involving Iran and their activities in Yemen".

He spoke to reporters as he left a closed-door briefing for some Senate committee leaders and Senate leaders by CIA Director Gina Haspel.

Reuters news agency, citing two anonymous sources, reported on Thursday that a top aide to Prince Mohammed, Saud al-Qahtani, who was sacked for his role in the killing of Khashoggi, personally oversaw the torture of one of the detained activists earlier this year.

Corker said he has suggested some changes to the legislation to Menendez, who is the top Democrat on the Foreign Relations panel.

A sizable number of senators on both sides of the aisle have rejected the administration's handling of the Khashoggi killing. The kingdom has insisted that the killing was a rogue operation in which Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman was not involved. The partnerships have also allowed Saudi women to study at MIT, according to the report. If he was in front of jury he would be convicted in 30 minutes, guilty.

On Thursday, Defense Secretary James Mattis appeared to leave the door open on blame in the Khashoggi killing, telling reporters on the way to a Defeat-ISIS coalition meeting in Ottawa, "We are continuing to review".
